The secret place 

I see your struggles and hear your calls for help. When you feel all alone, I am there. I feel your heartaches, and wait for you to come to Me in prayer. Come into My sanctuary, into that secret place that you and I can share. There I am able to lift the worries, the cares, and the confusion. There I can restore your feeling of purpose and infuse you with strength to go on.

Life can be a struggle, but you do not have to struggle alone. Many times I have allowed burdens in your life that seemed like mountains. They weigh your spirit down and you wonder why I have allowed them. I have not allowed these things to reprove you or as some sort of punishment. I have allowed them so that you would draw closer to Me. I know your heart better than anyone else ever could, and love you more dearly.

The problems and obstacles that I allow in your life can be taken two ways: They can make you either bitter or better. When you have found the peace that only I can give, I can then use you as an instrument of My love to comfort others.

Many events in life can seem unfair or even unloving, but when you look at them through My promise of “all things work together for good,”1 that gives a whole new meaning to things. That promise holds the key to easing any heartache, relieving any problem, and conquering any fear.
